Shoalhaven Orchid Society 65th Anniversary
The Shoalhaven Orchid Society celebrated its 60th birthday in 2016 and members have enjoyed a further five years of friendship and friendly competition since then.
Scale, Ants and Mould
Scale insect is probably the biggest pest of cultivated orchids. There are many species of scale but Boisduval scale appears to be the most common. These sap suckers can severely deplete or even kill an orchid if there is a heavy infestation.

Most orchid societies have a break over the summer period so there are some orchids that you rarely see on the benches because this is precisely the time that they come into bloom.
